[Current Music |Michael Buble - I've Got You Under My Skin]

The type of love that burns so passionately and so brightly that it burns out in a blink of the eye?

The type of love that burns slowly…steadily…and so deeply that it leaves an eternal mark upon your soul?

Which would you rather have?

Which could you give up?

Which should you hold on to?

I've finally gotten off my lazy butt and installed Wordpress for my blogging needs.  Thus, I'm relocating my journal.  Please head over to Boundless Dreamer for my future entries and such.  I might update here if enough people don't check the other journal.

Also, I have my photo galleries up and running so please head over and have a look.  Gotta figure out how to allow visitors to post comments.  *sighs*  More work.  Memories is the photo section of my site so enjoy.  ^_________^

June 05, 2005

It's been a very trying day today.  Long to say the least.  Woke up to the hollaring of my family beneath me and the blazing light of the morning sun above me.  I crawled out of bed and was immediately put to woke.  No getting out of it.  I trudge my way through my chores before chowing down and cleaning up to head to meet my father.

I have mixed feelings about him since he returned to Canada.  It's been about 4 years since the last time I saw him.  Since then he's forgotten my birthday twice, all major holidays, all of my brother's birthdays, both graduations and thus far the biggest obstacle I've overcome.  Seeing him brought butterflies in the stomach and anxiety in the heart.  My brother and I acted friendly as my grandmother and his nephew watched our little exchange.  The encountered lasted a little over an hour before Mike's shift needed taken care of.  I was thankful to be out of there.

Out of the entire experience I've received a $100, a piece of jade to ward of evil spirits and confirmation that he will always be the jerk that I remember him as.  He told my brother the single life was the way to go when my brother pointedly said he eventually wanted to get married.  He then laughed and I felt like vomitting at his insensitivity.  Best of all, the icing on the cake, he started smoking right there in the living room of the Old Folk's home knowing fully well his daughter has breathing problems.

Moving on, I head over to G-Square to meet mother and get whisked away to Best Buy at Eglinton to buy a new TV.  We ended up buying an open box item, waiting 15-20 mins. for a sales person to buy the TV and then have my godfather be practically rude to the sale's girl helping us.  I've done retail for a while now and when customers like my Godfather show up, I want to throw them out the door.  I try to the best of ability to save her but the damage is done.  Within minutes she's giving us short curt words.  *sighs*  Customer Service.

We pull the mother of a TV into the car, pile in and head over to Walmart for some cheap ass shoes.  Mom needed something immediately as her feet were slowly dying in the flip flops I bought a while back.  I don't blame her.  They do hurt.  We shop around and end up with loads of water, juice, chips and Mc Donald's of all things sitting in front of us.  I barely stomach the so-called "food" before my mother starts yammering about how fat I am because I eat so much.  By the end of her speech I'm more than done.  Minutes later my Godfather pushes more food in front of me telling me to eat it.  I reply in my much practiced pissed off little kid voice, "Someone's goin' to yell at me again so I rather not."  He nudges me on and eventually my mother caves in and says I can have it.  At this point I'm upset enough to throw up on them.  I reply no and they continue to push.  Let's say it ended when I replied it was fatten.

Now, we pile back into the car, juice and all and head home.  We load off, take the TV inside and I install as usual.  When I'm all done I turn it on and the receiver isn't able to pick up all the channels.  It picks up most of the digital channels we pay for but none of the lower channels that come standard with most packages.  I look around, fix this, look through the manuel and then cave in and call Rogers.  They're sending a guy out on Thurs. to have a look.  At this point my Godfather is looking over my work making sure I didn't f*ck up somewhere.  He likes to say how smart I am but indirectly calls me incompetent.  He disagrees with me on almost everything.  He has to be right.  He thinks he is right.  Kind of reminds me of someone.  *shrugs*  Go figure.  We end up fighting and he leaves.

All and all, a f*cking fantastic day.  I'm at my fuse's end but one little factoid had been keeping me from being totally cynical all day.  Well that was before he cancelled on me.  That's what I get for hoping.

All this on top of not feeling very well for the past couple of days.  Just more...blah now.  I think I need to lay down.  Crying might be in order.  The symbolic release of tears should give my heart some ease.  *shrugs*

Final Fantasy: Advent Children [May. 18th, 2005|03:51 pm]

[Current Mood |excitedexcited]

The much anticipated Final Fantasy: Advent Children based on the FFVII game will be out on DVD and the UMD for the PSP in both America and Japan on September 14 according to GameSpot.  FINALLY!!!  I've been waiting for this movie for what seems like forever.  I can't wait to purchase.  *makes grabby hand motions*  I know Kristin's goin' to go insane when this comes out 'cause she's been waiting longer than I have!  *LOL*  Soo GOOD!!!  *drools*

Recently, the 3 major gaming giants have released their next-generation consoles for our bank accounts to disappear into.  First up was Microsoft with it's XBox 360 (looks very much like a computer), then Sony's Playstation 3 (the controllers suck BIG TIME) and last but not least Nintendo with it's GameBoy Micro and The Revolution.  Two systems out at once.  Now that's cornering the market.

So far, Nintendo haven't released a price for their systems.  Sony is currently still thinking about it but there's an article saying it'll be under $500 US.  The XBox 360 is currently set at...I can't seem to find a price.  *shrugs*  Can't be that much right?  >_>

Correction, E3 is actually May 17 - 22 (fair and conference). It hasn't ended. *L* My bad.  What Is Your Love Number?

Your Love Number is
4

You are a creative and expressive lover - a true romantic at heart. An introspective soul, you know exactly how your ideal relationship should be. But if you don't get that ideal, you tend to get a bit pouty and dramatic. You need someone who can roll with the punches, that's for sure!

Now, something interesting.  What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

Your Birthdate: June 14
With a birthday on the 14th of the month (5 energy) you are inclined to work well with people and enjoy them.
You are talented and versatile, very good at presenting ideas, and you are also very good at organization and systematizing.
You may have a tendency to get itchy feet at times and need change and travel.

You tend to be very progressive, imaginative and adaptable.
Your mind is quick, clever and analytical.
A restlessness in your nature may make you a bit impatient and easily bored with routine, and rebel against it.
You have a tendency to shirk responsibility.

Are these things really so general that it could apply to anyone?   Hmmmm...At What Age Will You Die?

You Will Die at Age 76
76

You're pretty average when it comes to how you live...

And how you'll die as well.

Now that's just weird.  O____O;;;;  What Gender Is Your Brain?

Your Brain is 60.00% Female, 40.00% Male

Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female
You are both sensitive and savvy
Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed
But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve

Does that sound like me?  What Is Your Seduction Style?

Your Seduction Style: The Natural

You don't really try to seduce people... it just seems to happen.
Fun loving and free spirited, you bring out the inner child in people.
You are spontaneous, sincere, and unpretentious - a hard combo to find!
People drop their guard around you, and find themselves falling fast.

Ummm....What Are The Keys To Your Heart?

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who have a split personality - cold as ice on the outside but hot as fire in the heart.
In love, you feel the most alive when everything is uncertain, one moment heaven... the next moment hell.
You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was insecure and in constant need of reassurance.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You're feeling self centered.

*LOL*  How Normal Are You?

You Are 50% Normal
(Somewhat Normal)


While some of your behavior is quite normal...
Other things you do are downright strange
You've got a little of your freak going on
But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself

Last but not least, What Flavour Pocky Are You?

You Are Chocolat Orange Pocky

Your attitude: funky and flavorful
Rich and deep - yet zingy and zesty
You are the perfect partner in crime

E3 and the Future of Gaming Consoles [May. 7th, 2005|01:19 am]

[Current Music |...nuttin'...]

E3 and the Future of Gaming Consoles

With E3 recently finishing up, many of the gaming giants stepped forward to reveal the future consoles.  I've read some articles and here's my fav. parts from them.  I've purposely left out the Xbox 360 because I don't care much for it.  *shrugs*  If you do, click here.  That's an entire page describing the power behind it (Radeon graphics chip, ATI processors and a 60 GB hard drive).

SONY

Now, the big boys.  First up, Sony with it's tentatively titled, "Play Station 3".  This baby will be powered by NVidia (GeForce) graphics chip and IBM and Toshiba's new processor, The Cell (a brand-new multicore processor).  Now, why would you need a multicore processor?  Obviously Sony has big plans for the PS3.  This would mean "a next-generation game system that can also decode multiple HD streams, function as a PVR, record HDTV to Blu-ray, and also record video to a Memory Stick for PSP playback".  I was expecting this.  Now, for a more money-friendly possiblity for the PS3. 

"Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president and chief operations officer David Reeves hinted that the "PS3 is intrinsically linked with the PSX." The PSX, as you may recall, is the Sony DVD-HDD recorder that can also play PS2 games. Reeves further speculated that we might see two versions of the PlayStation 3: "You could probably envisage having PSX, and that branching out into PS3, which has all-singing, all-dancing features with maybe a hard disk drive. But also there might be a normal PS3 for gamers, who just want to play the movies and have better games. So you might see two versions; one is a home server, the other is for someone that can't afford whatever it might be, 600 or 700 Euros, and wants just to pay 200 Euros for a new generation games machine."

Two versions of the PS3 hopefully will be available.  I really don't want to spend $700-$900 US for a PS3.

"Based on the power of the Cell and its multipurpose capabilities, the PS3 has the potential to become a multimedia powerhouse." - James Yu (GameSpot.com)

NINTENDO

Last, but not least, Nintendo and it's very secretive console, "The Nintendo Revolution".  This company has kept almost everything concerning this console in secret.  According to the release at E3, all the consoles will have competitve hardware but Nintendo is ahead of the pack with rumours alone compared to the concrete facts Sony and Microsoft have released.  It's revolutionary gaming experience will be much anticipated by the gaming generation.

It's rumoured that the Revolution will have pressure-sensitive controllers (meaning that if you push softly on a button then it would be a soft break in a racing game).  Also rumoured would be the voice control since it's already featured on the Nintendo DS and the gyroscopic sensors (meaning if you move the controller the sensors will pick it up and move along with you).

CONCLUSION
"During this announcement period, it's all too easy to get caught up in hardware specification debates and lose sight of what all this hardware really means. These new platforms will allow game developers to create better, more enjoyable games. Ultimately the software has to fulfill the promises made by the hardware. While we're excited to learn all about the next-generation hardware at E3, we're even more excited to see the actual games that will bring the new systems to life."

MY CONCLUSION
I'm just going to wait patiently because nothing will be out till 2006.
